Emily's Ghost (10 Edition)by Denise Giardina
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Enigmatic, intelligent, and fiercely independent, Emily Brontë refuses to bow to the conventions of her day. She is distrustful of marriage, prefers freedom above all else, and walks alone at night on the moors above the isolated rural village of Haworth. But Emily's life is turned upside down by the arrival of an idealistic clergyman named William Weightman. A heart-wrenching love story, Emily's Ghost plumbs the depths of faith, longing, and romantic solitude.
Giardina pens a lustrous, beautifully written reimagining of the Bront family and, in particular, Emily Bront's passionate engagement with life.
"A convincing reimagining of the Brontë story, perfect for Brontë fans."--Booklist
A captivating novel that pulls at the heartstrings.Giardina"s Emily lives with the unconventionality and passion that infuses her own Wuthering Heights. Fans of historical romance definitely will want to meet her.It is impossible to begin and not finish [Emily"s Ghost], and just as impossible to lay it aside afterward and say nothing about it.
